Shropshire Drama Company

Flare Path

Walker Theatre

Wednesday 26th June –Saturday 29th June

From the pen of Terence Rattigan, “Flarepath”, is a story of love and deceit in a wartime setting. It’s a big show and has been with us since the first performance back in a darker world where the end of the war seemed miles away in 1942. It’s a sobering thought when one...

Its fair to say that one expected the theatre to be full to capacity tonight and admittedly one was not disappointed. The reason why…Well quite apart from the amazing Meat Loaf  score, reputation precedes Steve Steinman as he is well known to Shrewsbury theatre goers. Normally he is with...

It was encouraging to see the Walker Theatre sold out, one knows something good is about to go down. Tonight one was not disappointed as something big did go down. The Bob Dylan Story. Led by Bill Lennon as Bob himself, the hits just kept on coming and something big certainly went down.

National Dance Company Wales:

That’ll  Be The Day

Theatre Severn

Thursday 25th April


Well this show promised to be full of Rock and Roll Music laced with hilarious comedy. Hilarious? Very bold indeed. The music was almost faultless, the hilarious comedy? What a subjective claim. To say it creaked like a rickety staircase is being unfair to the stairs. The comedy was incredibly obvious and...
